laws, regulations. the difference between them is that the complaints can be filed under 4.105 a. alleging many different violations of improper activities but under 4.105 d, not all of them are investigated pursuant to procedures in c3699-13. so the whole thing in my opinion is moot. . i believe that miss herrick, may have also have wrongly claimed that the california evidence code 1040, and its definition of official information, may have been misquoted and she may have incorrectly relied on deputy city attorney improper letter to the sunshine ordinance task force in which he wrongly combined two or three of dr. derek kurr's complaints under one ball of wax wrongly. he made a mistake when he did that. in section 1040 is not whether disclosure is permitted, it is whether disclosure is forbidden. jerry made that lettering error. how a deputy city attorney can confound forbidden can permitted and then, deputy city attorney herrick fell into the same mix is really disturbing. >> let me ask you about that mr. hau. because c3-699-13, appears to use the term to the extent permitted
of bias. and i think that is... i think that is clear that there is going to be some perception. the law does provide, though, that even some perception of bias is permissible in a situation like this where you have no legal conflict and we really don't have other options that would allow us to have somebody else adjudicate it. >> may i complaint on that point? >> you will have that opportunity, mr., shaw. so, i am not sure that we have a choice. it doesn't sound like we have a choice. and i, i don't think that an advisory opinion will be particularly helpful if we have to readjudicate it. >> i agree. >> i am not sure that this is, where they have to make determinations related to the executive directors that they hire and work with and conduct business together, that they investigate harassment complaints, whistle blower complaints they seek outside of the council to do that if they are well-organized. but they handle those because it is their job to do so. and i... so i raised it because we do want to be careful and thorough. but i think at this point it might make sense to proceed wit
this body has been, it enables city bodies and personnel to evade their daoulties under the law and to hide that from public scrutiny. the whistle blower laws are not be used to protect the whistle blower but to protect the target. they are being used to hide the true facts of the investigation and to allow the city agency and employees to evade their actions. they hide the extent and the validity of the investigative process used by the ethics staff and the public records law are always intended to disclose rather than conceal public matters. instead these laws are purposefully misinterpreted to protect the agencies in question but also the ethics staff. as far as you not having a conflict of interest, let's look at the arts commission when they got the report from the civil grand jury that listed what they had done, including spending $300,000 on things that they had no legal authority to do so. charging fees, that they had no legal authority and fire the cultural director and replace the head of the commission. the bottom line is if you were a commission and you were in charge of a staff
and determine whether any documents in it are must be disclosed under state law. and that is what the ethics commission does. so i think and i hope that answers part of your question. the second part and maybe this responds, is when the ethics commission investigates allegations of sunshine allegations involving other departments, they may, depending on the discorrection of the investigate or to review the documents that were not disclosed in order to determine what to do and how to proceed in their investigation. i think in this case, miss herrick could seek to review the files of the ethics commission to determine whether those files are documents that must be disclose under state law. i can speak for the whistle blower program. >> miss herrick, did you review the documents in the possession that were maintained by the ethics commission related to this matter? >> i did not. and just in response to your... all of your questions, we did talk a bit about, apen disd3, 699-1 3a of the city charter which does make the city records confidential. and consistent with any advice that we would get fr

telling city bodies that not following the law as written, is wrong. and quit advising them to do it. this also referred to the district attorney office as well as this. >> good evening, commissioners, my name is dr. derek kerr. and i have comment that relates to the executive director's report and your annual report to the board. as you know, protection of whistle blowers is one of your mandates, it is in article four of the campaign and government conduct code. but your work in this area is invisible. there is nothing about whistle blower retaliation in your minutes for the last seven years, or your director's reports, or your annual reports. recently the controller's whistle blower program has been reporting retaliation complaints. 17, this year, none substantiate. since 1995 none have been by this body. each year you are required to provide a report to the board of supervisors. one requirement is that you note the number of complaints that you have received. another requirement is to report, the type of conduct complained about, unquote. and so please consider adding whistle blow
the law of this county and you cannot just throw it out... >> can i make myself clear? >> no. >> i want an ethics commiting commissioner not a deposit city attorney to review those files i want you to look at those. >> could we turn off that mic? >> i would be prepared to make a motion along the lines of mr. gibner's suggestion if that reflects what you are suggesting >> miss herrick? >> yes. >> yes, i am. >> would you be willing to review the file that the correspondence file to determine whether there are any non-privileged documents there in? >> yes. >> thank you, very much. >> right and we will need to report to the commission explaining the results of your review. if that would be okay? >> certainly, yes. >> to the extent that you find documents that... well let me also ask this question, can we the ethics commission know the volume of the correspondence file with the controller's office? is that something that is publicly disclosable? >> is that question to me? >> i am sorry that is to mr. gibner. >> okay. i think that what you are asking is when miss herrick reviews the docu
. my biggest concern was law enforcement but in law enforcement is the same thing. they are incredibly well trained and intelligent and good at their jobs so you better have an explanation for everything. the day i got pulled over they asked me you have been arrested, i have never been arrested in my life which is true but they searched the car and found drugs and i was a product of the system. it was irrelevant that the search was illegal. the drugs were in the car. they got the drugs off of the street but that has not been an effective strategy when you start looking at the drug war. >> so you are busted. some time later you have -- there's another legal issue that comes up. your back is against eyewall and that is when you get the knock on the door. you walk out and somebody says these are law enforcement people out here. i was arrested. >> i was arrested and scared straight. i decided i would rather be poor and free than half a little bit of money and not able to sleep at night. soaker two years i was on probation. i paid an attorney to $32,000 to get me off the hook and that is so
of this hearing is not in accord with the law. and i hope you can cure that by granting us a right of appeal. and you have heard ample comments. >> we can cure it by continuing this case. >> yes, it was not the board of appeals to provide that letter. it was something that the sfmta was responsible for. i wanted to make that clear. >> in one case or another there is a violation there. i am not asking for a continuance because this is the utmost of important. i would like a resolution tonight. but i want to note for the record this is not proper procedure. >> do we have a copy of that letter? >> in your file that he was not going to submit a brief and submit to the city attorney. >> do you have any further comment than what you said, you would like us to resolve the issue today and you believe this is a sunshine violation. >> that's correct. >> thank you. >> commissioners. >> is it submitted? >> yes. >> okay. well, i -- i am an attorney. and i definitely come from the perspective of someone who believes in the democratic principle of due process. that many of the speakers tonight have spoken
the law because they feel like they are losing is wrong. what? by ensuring that all voters get to cast ballots? why on earth would a republican governor want to decrease early voting? well, it could be because the democrats aren't losing, they're actually kicking butt in early voting. according to an internal obama campaign document today that is exactly the case. here's what that document reveal reveals. in florida over a third of expected voters have already voted. as you can see early voters 50% voting for president obama. obama, 44% for mitt romney. election day that means mitt romney has to get 53% of the vote in florida if he's going to win. so that is a pretty hefty tag to run up. that's all according to the obama campaign. in iowa over a third of voters have already voted there. and among those early voters, you can see 64% of those are supporting barack obama. 35% of them are supporting mitt romney. and that means that mitt romney is going to need to win 59% of election-day voters. in north carolina, nearly half of all ballots have already been cast. and of those who have alr

[laughter] that's really hard. that's artificial intelligence. turns out it's, like, just shooting guns, that's easy. robots are good at that stuff, but bad at reassuring people. that's not the way it's going to happen. we can't have -- we can't have robots with the intelligence to make ethical choices. we need to search society and cull qhur, what's what's going on, and evolve our regulatory and surveillance activity to stop it early. >> back to the technology, and there's questions about hobbyists, and you talked about the doctor e-mailing you, the dna for your vaccine. what if it was a spoof e-mail. e-mail is easy to spoof. ingest this, give it to your kids. worry about that? >> i talked to craig at length about this. right now, dna sint thinks is done by big companies. you can design a, you know, games on th

regard for any other considerations. all we're asking them do is to obey the law as we understood it. there will not be excessive noises and close at midnight and there would be some kind of regulation or attempt to maintain a good establishment. a few years ago, especially in 2008 -2009 the neighborhood was totally quiet. the reion is just cut out all the street noise, all of the traffic and all of the bars and everything else. and so it was very quiet. but now the activity has come back into the neighborhood and that is good. we know it's good for the city, but every friday and saturday i say to my husband we're going to be up late tonight, between 12 and 2:00 it becomes excessive and sometimes it goes on until 3:00 in the morning. it's a little ridiculous, actually. we're not asking too much. you know, we're asking them at 12:00, just follow your rules and we're asked to follow the law and all we're asking is that lethy also follow the law. >> ma'am, did you get your keys to the gate? >> yes, we go our keys to the door and the gate. thank you very much. >> we'll have rebrutal.
